Dear parents, dear kindergarten teachers,
welcome to the pages of the "Forscher Früchtchen" Bremen.
Our research focuses on the question of how children develop an understanding of norms and rules and which social-cognitive and motivational capabilities contribute to the ontogeny of human normativity. Through our research we are aiming for a better understanding of the developmental foundations of human cooperation and societal rules and regulations.
Our experimental studies are always designed as little games. We strive for children to have fun while participating in our studies. Therefore, we use familiar objects (e.g. balls, toy blocks) or handmade toys and hand puppets. Whilst playing the children interact with our trained staff.
